Funders Provide Support for 60 Maui Providers to Attend IVAT Summit 2024

IVAT Summit Funding Support for Maui Providers

The 21st Institute on Violence, Abuse and Trauma (IVAT) Hawaiʻi International Summit on Preventing, Assessing, & Treating Trauma Across the Lifespan will take place April 8 – 11, 2024, at the Hawai‘i Convention Center in Honolulu. The participation of Maui providers is especially crucial this year as the summit will offer sessions on addressing the long-term impacts of the wildfire disaster along with opportunities for self-care and wellness, healing and support. Thanks to the generous support of funders, Hoʻoikaika Partnership has funding to cover the IVAT registration, flights, and lodging for 60 human service providers from Maui.
